If you decide to change a template, can you apply the edits to all existing pages currently using that template?

Hi @Mekala Ramasamy 

Welcome to the Atlassian community. 

Confluence templates can only be used to produce a single page; subsequent child pages must be added manually.

However, you do have a few options to work around that limitation: 

1. Confluence supports copying a hierarchy of pages. You could create a template space. Create your pages. Then copy the entire hierarchy when you need them. But it's not very discoverable and users would have to be trained to use it. You can find more information about it in this post. 

2. Another alternative is to use one of the apps on the marketplace that extend the template functionality. You can find a list of these apps her:
